ABOUT

I currently write songs with a close friend and keyboard player in a band. We're looking to start our own project, as our current band wants to play more metal material and we'd like to pursue a different sound, sort of like a combination of Allman Bros and Steely Dan, with a few hints of funky-ness as well as that clean Rundgren sheen. My writing partner/keyboardist and I are also heavily influenced by Indian music, both classical and popular Bollywood tunes, and intend to instill this sound into some of our songs and sound.
We're heavily inspired by pop and rock of the 60s and 70s, and want to draw inspiration from these genre's heavy hitters while still moving the sound forward in our own unique, modern way. We love jamming, but we also love writing and playing live, and the goal is to make younger people like us appreciate instrument-based music again while pushing the genre further.
